cigarette burn

last nite i drank a good bit and burnt myself with a cigarette ember, i didnt notice it for a few seconds but pulled away after i did

when i woke up this morning i noticed that the spot i burned was raised up like a white blister, it doesnt really hurt or anything, but i was wondering if i should pop it or just leave it alone and just put neosporin on it ???

Re: cigarette burn

Nah, just leave it. It's like any blister. It'll be fine if you just leave it.

I've done this a few times, though nothing bad enough to get a blister afterwards. Usually I touched the cig to my skin for a split second, not noticing how close it was, and jumped and moved it away before it did anything. LOL.

Re: cigarette burn

steve is right,you are always best to leave burn blisters alone and let your body take care of them.once you pop the blister it just opens a route for possible infection,right now,it is protected the way it is.if it does pop(it should only release a watery fluid,if anything else,could be infected),you may want to just place a band aid over the area for the first couple days and also use that anti B cream on it to help keep out infection.it will eventually go away,but could leave a small scar depending on how far down into the skin layers it went.
